hahahahahaha wait till Dr Fafalaza comes in

Hayi ke thina asizngeni cause we only started playing professional football in 1985!! 

Bigger? Really now?

Oh, please, go and fall off some edge somewhere wena, don't come here with your misguided facts which we will unpack thus for you:

PROFESSIONALISM
What is that? How does one objectively measure it and compare its existence in one sporting entity as compared to the next? Just browse and check which club is the common denominator in most disputed transfers in the country. Besides, is it professional to do a sod-turning ceremony (on land you don't own nogal) and then wash off the picks and shovels only to remain silent for decades?

CLUB VALUE
I certainly hope you are not comparing Lekgwati's pension package v the value of Nyawana's right foot! Compare apples with apples, not raisins - check the market value of shares in the Ellis Park precinct compared to that village on the outskirts

PLAYERS' SALARIES
Now you are speculating, chief. We all know players' incomes are closely guarded secrets in local football. Besides, we all know who pays top dollar here in Mzansi, does that make them the biggest?

CLUB HONOURS
Quantity v quality. That is murky ground of brown envelopes and swallowed whistles, but while you are at it, just answer this: Is Liverpool bigger than, say, Chelsea or Man City right now?

FANS
I see you believe all the hype. Do you perhaps have the audited figures of Southern African sporting fans?

SPONSORS
Now you are being disingenuous mouthing off a few names for one whilst omitting a few for the other. Perhaps it would help to look at what they bring in, because one bigg sponsor might actually render the rest unnecessary

PLAYING GROUNDS
I suggest you smoke that sod from Mogale City, hahaha

heheheheeh taken to cleaners.. so lets take this to PE shall we?

Hehehehehe I am dead by Falaza....
